Directors: Fatih Akin

Diane Kruger gives an astonishing performance as Katja, a loving, unconventional wife and mother, in this riveting thriller by Turkish director Fatih Akin. Katja’s life falls apart when a bomb attack in her home city of Hamburg robs her of everything she holds dear. Struggling to cope with shock and grief, she becomes obsessed with finding the perpetrators and understanding the reasons behind the seemingly senseless attack. A courtroom drama as well as a thriller, Kruger’s brilliantly compelling turn as the hard-drinking, drug-using victim of injustice won a well-deserved Best Actress prize at Cannes.
